Bane was not a Presa Canario


In San Francisco a (supposed) Presa Canario Dog kill to a woman, and this make a tremendous commotion, the journalists, the reporters, all the newspapers, weekly, the public opinion (ay the public opinion!, what dangerous is when acts under the misinformed pressure), the Law and the Justice of USA begins their activity. Ignorance on subject is great, semi-truths circulate everywhere, must to kill the dog, they will say -it seems that already have killed it, and it seems me well -, has to kill to all dogs that kills people -as if every day dogs killed to pile of good citizens, we are so customary to that the humans kill the humans, with the arms, the automobiles, the Justice, the drug, the surgery, the tobacco, the alcohol, with the medicines that sometimes kill more than they cure, ay, the pharmaceutical industry and some doctors!, with the hunger, the wars in name of The Peace, with the pumps antiperson and other devices to kill that are legally sells to other countries in conflict, generally poor, with the not-respect to the natural reserves, the ethnic minorities, the culture of the ethnic minorities, etc., we are so customary to that the humans kill the humans, I say, that when a dog kills a person it seems that the dogs kills half humanity, and the best way to solve the problem is prohibiting the breed and sale of a canine breed, or several whom nothing they have to do with the dog or dogs that at a given moment killed a woman, a men, a boy, in the North American territories, or in any other country.

No, Bane, the delinquent dog, the dog that has killed the poor woman, is not a Presa Canario Dog, is-a-pathological-case product of crossings carried out in USA between dogs type presa imported of the Canary Islands with dogs type presa produced in USA (whom nothing they have to do with the Canary Islands) in which predominated the blood, or genetic inheritance, by the crossings with this breed, of the American Pit Bull Terrier. I have been coming denouncing this reality by active and passive for many years PSEUDOPRESAS canarios are that and not another thing. PSEUDOPRESAS canarios has been born to the shelter, or shades, of the Presa Canario Dog.

The eagerness to make easy and in short term money has induced to many people (unconscious, or without scruples) to breed and sell PSEUDOPRESAS canarios in many countries, profiting the fashion of the Presa Canario Dog.

The Presa Canario Dog is not that that outside our insular borders many sell like authentic native dogs of presa of the Canary Islands.

The Presa Canario Dog is psychically stable, affectionate with the family, good guardian and defender of its territory, brave, nothing biter, able to coexist with other domestic animals, when he has grow up with them from pup. In the Canary Islands there have been no behavior problems, aggression, deaths of humans, on the part of Presa Canario Dogs. There are presas canarios dogs that can get to bite the intruder, or delinquent who enter in his territory, but never until killing it.

A single case has not occurred to date. But it is that the genetic base of the true Presa Canario Dog (modern) is the Majorero Cattle Dog, animal very intelligent, able to distinguish any unforeseen situation that can take place at any time, of day or at night, in or outside its territory, and consequently to avoid the looting or robbery in properties of its master. The genetic inheritance of the Majorero Cattle Dog, and therefore its behavior, is very present in the Presa Canario Dog (true).

The American Pit Bull Terrier, however, is totally strange to the Presa Canario Dog, and it does not have to surprise us that some dogs type presa in which is put the APBT behave, in certain circumstances in an unexpected and undesired way.

Bane, the dog that has killed a woman in San Francisco is anything except a Perro de Presa Canario.
